Hey, I have my resonators removed currently and am planning on removing my mufflers to get a better noise. If I remove my muffs and put straight pipes in will I lose a significant amount of Torque? I've heard this increases HP though due to relieving backpressure. I still have all my cats on though. So am I gaining HP, but losing Torque or what? :confused:

Simple answer... Yes and No

Complex answer... Removing obstructions in the exhaust flow (muffs, cats, res) will improve high end horsepower at the sacrafice of low end torque. I removed the back half of my exhaust from the res back and liked the sound... for a day. Very bad resonation (plus it was dumping out just below the passenger cabin) and the lack of low-end torque (read: no wheel spin, at all) was a real bummer. Also note... you don't lose torque, it just shifts the power curve.

BTW the top end was insane (lots of screaming and speed)
